Message from Your Golf Department
 
The Sun City Texas Golf Club is thriving through your efforts and the efforts of the Golf Committee. The courses have never looked better and Sun City Residents are playing more rounds of golf than Sun City Texas has ever seen. We are excited to share with you the budget direction for 2021 and the proposed opportunity to take the Sun City Texas Golf Club Private.
 
 
With the support of the Golf Committee that met on September 28, 2020 (click here to see the minutes) plus the support of the Finance Committee, the Golf staff has put forth a budget with an eight percent increase to all rates. 
 
The 2021 budget direction for Sun City Texas Golf Club going private was also discussed at the Board Workshop on November 5 click here to view all the read-ahead materials including the proposed fee schedule.
 
If you have any questions about the proposed fee schedule please email Josh Lockhart at Josh.lockhart@sctexas.org

We will select one photo per week to post in the Golf Communicator with the photographer’s name and the photo description.

Gathering at the Facility
 
We’ve seen an increase in players gathering at all three courses following play. Once play has completed, players need to leave the facility and refrain from gathering. This includes parking lots and any area on golf property. One area in particular is behind Mulligan's restaurant near 18 green at White Wing. Please be courteous to your fellow players and adhere to our current guidelines. Thank you for your assistance.
